Sat Apr 21, 2007 6:19 am

Why is LAX on reverse ops (departing to the East on the 6s & 7s) today (4/20)?

It has been coming straight down all morning. 6's & 7's are the "storm" runways. It's cleared this afternoon so I expect they have reverted to normal now.
What is it? It's A 747-400, but that's not important right now.

Well as of 2PM, its all back to normal ops, when exactly where they using the 6's and 7's?

My friend who lives right under the downwind leg of the Approach to the 24's said that its been like for a couple of hours.

Winds were from the E and SE most of the day, but started gusting around 1830Z such that the tailwind component for using 24L/R and 25L/R became an issue..

Kinda wished I had a record function on my ASD today. I had all inbounds to LAX filtered (I was anticipating the possible reconfig and wanted to make sure I caught it when it happened) and it was kinda interesting to watch everyone work into the east traffic.

Ocassionally I've seen some of the big boys, QF and NZ using the 7's to depart..Granted it was like at 2330 but still cool none the less... My apartment is much quieter when 7's are being used...
